Use a Garmin 1450


The Garmin Nuvi 1450 can be used while driving or walking.

While driving, use the Nuvi 1450 to create a route to your destination and get step-by-step directions, to hear the names of upcoming streets, to tell you when to change lanes and to find out the speed limits on unfamiliar streets.


As a pedestrian, you can have the Nuvi 1450 create a route for you that uses a mixture of walking and public transportation, such as the subway or bus system, if you have purchased cityXplorer maps for that area.


Tap "Where to?" to set up a route. The "Where to?" icon is a large magnifying glass.


Tap "Addresses." The available categories are address, points of interest, go home, recently found, favorites and intersections.


Input the name of the state or county, if it is out of town.

Then tap "Spell city." Spell out the name of the city using the pop up keyboard.

Press "Done."


Enter the address number and press "Done."

Then enter the street name and press "Done."


The "Go" screen opens automatically.

Tap the green "Go" button. The Nuvi 1450 will now calculate a route to the address.

Follow the voice prompts and map highlight to your destination.


Navigate Using Coordinates


Tap "Where to?" and then tap "Coordinates."

Tap the coordinate you want to adjust/input a new coordinate.


Tap "Format" to choose the right coordinate format for the map you are using.


Enter the coordinates. Tap "Next."


Tap the green "Go" button to calculate a route.


Use the Map Page


Navigate to your destination by following the voice prompts, highlighted route on the map and directions located at the top of the map screen.
Tap the "turn" icon located in the upper left corner of the screen to see the next turn. It may have a turning or straight arrow and the number of miles until the turn. Tap the bar across the top with the next direction listed on it to see a list of all directions.

Tap the plus or minus signs on the right side of the screen to zoom in or out.


Press the spinning arrow in the lower left corner of the screen to return to the main menu.

Tap the "car" icon traveling along the highlighted route to enter the "Where Am I?" screen and get your exact location, coordinates and nearby emergency services.


Hope this helps

SOURCE: garmin nuvi 360 wont unlock maps

Master reset is after you turn on the GPS put a finger on the left lower corner rightaway and then keep the finger there, wait until it shows up the "Do you really want to start up in maintainance mode"

You are not able to use others nuvi's map on your nuvi 360, as each map must match with the GPS unit ID, to find out your GPS's unit ID, go to "Setting" tab on "System", tab on " About"

Go to Garmin.com and then support. Register your device, and you might get a free update, just make sure that you select the same map that is currently on your device. If you don't qualify for a free update then you can buy it and do the same.

I have downloaded a file for an updated version of a map how do i transfare it to my nuvi


Welcome to FixYa!

To update your Garmin device, go to this link https://my.garmin.com/maps/chooseDeviceType.htm?


  • Select your device type.
  • It will request to install the Gamin Communicator Plug-in.
  • Make sure that you connect your Garmin device to the computer before proceeding to install.
  • After the installation, it will automatically download for an updated map.

Note: Sometimes, there are no available updated maps and the update service will simply freeze. I'm not quite sure if this issue has already been fixed in Garmin's website.

To confirm if there are available maps, contact Garmin:
Monday - Thursday: 8 AM - 6 PM, Friday 8 AM - 5 PM Central Time (closed holidays)

US: 913-397-8200
US Toll Free: 1-800-800-1020

Have a great day.

No detailed maps found that support routing. The nuvi cannot be used without them. No maps can be brought up? turn on and I get the message above


Whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

Go to the gamin site and register. You will then need to download the driver for your model. After you register the web site should walk you through this. after you download the driver you may then update the software. One word of note, if you have the 2008 software than your up to date. Gamin updates there maps only once a year.
